Formula1 Talk

New rules, new designs.

I think the new cars look a lot better than those "punch on the nose" designs from last year.

McLaren and Ferrari have unveiled their cars.

Two America tracks? Are you talking about the one in New Jersey? The FIA is postponing that track again because the company sponsoring the race isn't making its payments. But it's still on the schedule for 2015. And about the car design, I'm not a huge fan of the...bratwurst hanging off the front. But I do like the fact that the noses don't have cookie-cutter designs anymore; each team has its own unique design for the nose unlike two years ago where the only way to tell the cars apart from each other was by their paint job.

looks aside, RedBull are having reliability issues while testing in Jerez!! Williams, Mclaren, Mercedes, and Ferrari are not. It sucks that jersey is postponed again, but I hope they race there eventually.

All the Renault powered cars are having heating issues, but lol that way i see this is that it is great .. now S. Vettel cant 3 in a row :lol:

As for the liveries yeah it sucks, but Williams is said to be racing the old school Matini livery 8-)

Hahaha, sure hope they don't sound like one :mrgreen:

This year will be the battle between the earo dudes and the engine mechs. Turbos create more heat, so they need bigger holes to get rid of it, but the aerodynamica specialists want as little openings as possible to create optimal air flow and gain maximum downforce. Interesting stuff.
The Renault guys probably underestimated what a hot engine they have made, lol. But Renault knows a thing or two about making succesful Turbo engines.
I doubt they will have fixed all problems before season start, like Mateschitz said.

Maybe i was a bit early with stating that this years cars would look better. What's the story with all those sausage noses... Maybe they should scout for a Hot Dog sponsor.

If Williams drives in Martini colors that would be cool. Martini and Gulf are my favorite liveries.
